Carlos Cuellar played for Glasgow Rangers in 2007-08 and seems to be willing to work with new Gers’ manager Steven Gerrard at Ibrox.

Former Ibrox defender Carlos Cuellar has suggested to The Sunday Post that he is willing to work with Rangers manager Steven Gerrard.

Cuellar was on the books of Rangers for the 2007-08 season, winning the Scottish League Cup and the Scottish Cup with the Gers.

The 36-year-old, who left Rangers for Aston Villa in 2008 for a transfer fee reported by The Sunday Post to be worth £7.8 million, is now playing for Israeli club Beitar Jerusalem.

The former Sunderland and Norwich City defender has suggested that he would be happy to work with new Rangers manager Gerrard, although the ex-Ibrox defender has admitted that it would not be in a playing capacity.

Cuellar told The Sunday Post: “I’d love to go back to take some role in the club. If you want, you can give Steven Gerrard my number and tell him to call me!

“I would run back to Rangers. I’m probably a bit old now to go back as a player, but it’s my dream to come back one day as the manager of Rangers.”

Optimism at Rangers

With Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard taking charge of Rangers, there is a certain buzz and optimism at Ibrox.

Cuellar’s offering his services even as a coach underlines just how big a pull Rangers are under Gerrard now.

The Ibrox faithful should be looking forward to the 2018-19 campaign, and hope that the team close the gap on Old Firm rivals Celtic.
